Bruno Skvorc is a blockchain and Solidity developer and consultant. A former web developer until JavaScript “drove him away”, he now exclusively works on smart contract auditing, development and consulting/training at Bitfalls.com. He also owns Coinvendor.io, an onboarding platform for crypto enthusiasts.
